Notes:
You can serve this salad warm, fresh from the stove if you like. I prefer to chill it for at least an hour.
Use your favorite Italian dressing. I love Good Seasons, made with 50/50 blend of white balsamic vinegar and white vinegar. I use canola oil, rather than olive oil.
Feel free to add other ingredients to this recipe.
Hard-boiled eggs, red pepper strips, bell peppers, chopped pickles or pickle relish. A dollop of mustard. Enjoy!
